DIY organiser/DIY bookshelf


I was always looking to rearrange my messed up home. So got into the home improvement drive and found out some DIY organizers to arrange everything systematically. The first one is the organizer for my toddler books, her colors, pen, scissors. After making it, I really loved it as how much organised it looks now.



I had an empty cardboard box of plastic container set. So I up cycled it into my new DIY organizer.



The above image was the empty cardboard box. I cut the upper lid of the box. And then cut the two sides as in the below image shown. I made a partition for books and stationary with the cut piece of the upper lid. And then stick some craft papers on the sides of the cardboard box. And the final outcome is really amazing.

Continent song

This is how we learned our continent names.
We enjoyed learning the names of 7 continents of the world by a song and then followed by a printable from totschooling.

Here is the Montessori song for continents -

Tell me the continents
tell me the continents
Tell me if you can
North America, South America,
Africa, Europe and Asia
Don't forget Australia, Don't forget Antartica
Tell me the continents
tell me the continents
tell me if you can

Number board game for preschoolers

It's never too early to introduce board games to kids. It has many benefits as it helps them build team play, follow the instructions, wait for their turn and so on.

The usual snake and ladder feels little overwhelming for younger children and so I created this simple board game with no snakes or ladder. Just start from 1 and reach till 20. This helps kids to use dice and recognize the numbers and move accordingly. This can also be a good travel time game for kids. Easy to carry and can have hours of fun..

Carrot beetroot juice








Good morning everyone...
Sharing some weekend vibes here..
Had a great start of the day with this colorful jar of happiness..

We often neglect the good and simple healthy recipies and look around for ones that need some imported veggies or other ingredients that are not available easily to most of us and we leave the idea of trying them out... This happens to me most of the times..
Here's a very simple juice which we all have heard of but never tried to make it..
This juice has many awesome health benefits...




Preparation- take carrot and beetroot pieces in the grinder along with some salt, black pepper, Cummin seeds, coriander and add water accordingly..
Now strain the mixture and enjoy the wonderful juice..

I wonder if we can use the leftover residue in some other way as I don't feel like throwing it away.. If you have any good ideas to use it, please do share.. It would be very helpful..


HAPPY WEEKEND!!!!!!!

Logic puzzle - Double entry matrix free printable








Logic puzzle - Double entry matrix 


After simple color matching and dice number and many such activities, we tried a logic game with a double entry matrix for the first time with my 30 months toddler. This was a great start to a little complicated puzzle but it turned out really well. This has inspired me to introduce more of such puzzles. This double entry matrix needs to match the color and the number on the dice at the same time.

Spatial discrimination activity for preschoolers







Spatial discrimination or spatial organisation is an activity where the kid has to reproduce the positions and patterns. A very nice and engaging activity. This can be easily carried as a travel bag activity. Kids learn about positions, patterns, creating the similar grid as shown..

So the printable has a 2 X 2 grid and some sample grids with 6 different objects.

1. Place the grid in the center.
2. Place the individual objects in a line so that all are visible.
3. Now place a sample grid for the child to refer and reproduce the same.
4. Go by one and one and the activity becomes fun once the child gets hold of the concept. This activity can be extended to 3 X 3 later on once the child is old enough to get the logic..

The activities for this week turned out to be very engaging and with lots of new concept and learning...
So lets have a look at the activities one by one...

This activity is for shape sorting with some pasting work. 


I made this using card-stock paper and some colored craft papers. This was fun to explore to make different patterns out of it by matching the colors.

Mrs. Funny bones book review - creativemommystuff








Book Name :- Mrs. Funny Bones
Author - Twinkle Khanna
Genre - Non-fiction
No. of pages - 235
Year of publication - 2015

Starting with the index, this book doesn't have the chapter numbered as 1,2,3 rather is kept alphabetical like A,B,C which is something unique about the book. So the book has 26 small chapters.

About the Author :-
Twinkle Khanna also known as Tina is an Indian newspaper columnist, author,film producer,interior designer and former film actress. this was her first book which were sold over one hundred thousand copies, making her India's highest-selling female writer of 2015.

Review :-
Throughout the book, Twinkle Khanna has talked about A to Z aspects of her life and this might be the motivation for writing the book. 
A very simple,plain, intelligible and many funny doses throughout the book. The author is narrating her daily routines and incidents in a very lively and entertaining way. 
This makes us realize that incidents are just part of life and not our complete life. They will pass soon. I never felt to keep the book aside unless my mommy duties called me up.. :)

Reading the book feels very related as a mommy and Twinkle Khanna depicting her life is just like any other mom managing her work, business, children and in-laws. Her writing is very simple and keeps engaged throughout. Every incident depicted in the book feels like you are having a visual moving in front of your eyes. She also mentions many ugly facts that our society deals with and some small lessons to be learned. She has not sugar coated what she feels and has not filtered her opinions and has expressed what she experienced in the most unapologetic manner. So the purpose of this book will be to just entertain the readers. The author has made a good attempt to make the readers laugh through sharing her humor quotient but some of the jokes feel forced or pointless and some are mildly amused.  





So if u r looking for some light reading sessions then this book is apt and also good for the #1000bookchallenge of reading 1000 books a year which I have taken up as you complete it within 2 or 3 days... :)
